As always these dies are well crafted and take our paper crafting skills to the next level!
While making our cards today I wanted to create the back panes using glitter! We all have tons of this and it seems to keep growing on its own... So let's dig in and get glittery (I know not a word, but it sounds cute, right?)
For my First project I used the Leaf Border die... I layers two colors of glitter when I created my panel and then cut out the same colors in my card stock and created a shadow. This helped to allow my focal point to stand out and give the image of a shadow panel...
Next up is the A2 Tulip Flower Frame die... This die will fit perfectly on the front of your Standard A2 size card base (4 1/4 inc x 5 1/2 in). There are so many possibilities and techniques you can use for this die. I chose my glitter background and also used card stock close tot he colors and added them on top to add dimension!
For my final card I used the Swirly Doily die and I was very much inspired by the picture on the back of the packaging! I used the die to cut both my focal point and a section out of my panel...
Once you get your dies you will be creating many projects to come....
Getting Inky, suffering paper cuts, cutting using metal dies and stamping everything... These are just some of the fun and mischievous ways together we will create paper art! So stay and be motivated and inspired! ...and let me know what inspires your creativity!
Well, hello there everyone! My name is Desiree Kuemmerle and I live in Lansdale, PA with the hubs of over 20 years and our furry bot Max! I am fluent in Crafting, a Master Paper Manipulator and a violator of all that makes sense...
Since about the time I spoke my first word, I’ve been an avid crafter alongside my mom and sister. You name the craft and I’ve probably bought it, collected it, tried it and finally stored it. Right now, getting Inky, suffering paper cuts, cutting with metal dies and stamping everything, whether it moves or not makes me smile and I must pass that along to everyone I know and don’t know!
